No big names, no formula! Yet the trailer of forthcoming sports-based movie "Khwaabb" has received 1,22,000 views within 10 days of its release on YouTube. The director is overwhelmed.
"The response is a proof that people have not closed minds towards experimental cinema," Zaid Ali Khan, director of the movie, told IANS through SMS.
"It's very exciting to see this kind of a response and just goes to show that people are open to different, experimental and independent cinema," he added.
The movie deals with the life of an athlete and a swimmer and their dream to win an Olympic medal for India.
The first trailer was released Aug 23 in the capital and it was uploaded online Aug 24.
"I am very overwhelmed and I never expected such an amazing response," said Khan.
The film is slated for an October release.
